Hills Biodiversity Incorporated
Mobilising to prevent species loss
We often hear about species on the brink of extinction or the climate on the brink of collapse – and this sounds quite daunting and hopeless.
However, community and landholders can work together to push back that brink!
Are you time-poor and still want to contribute to improving biodiversity in the Hills?
We get together for about 2 hours per month on the third Sunday of the month at 9am - no commitment, attend as many events as you want. We plant and/or weed, then enjoy a light lunch washed down with a drink of your choice.
It's a great way to meet and chat with like-minded people, and connect yourself with the local community. Find out more by contacting Warren on 0408 444 592.

All committee members are volunteers, some working full-time, some semi retired. We are seeking people with specialist expertise in Marketing, Sponsorship/Fundraising to join our Committee as well as people willing to volunteer for specific events only.
